What is Propecia and how does it work?

Propecia is a clinically proven treatment for male pattern baldness. Itís a prescription-only medicine available through our Online Doctor service. Propecia is currently unavailable on the NHS.

Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) causes the hair follicles to shrink and eventually stop functioning. Propecia works by reducing the DHT levels in the scalp thereby preventing this from happening.

How effective is the medicine for hair loss?

Propecia is clinically proven and only available on prescription. In clinical trials, 90% of men with male pattern baldness kept their hair. Two out of three men who stayed on the programme for long-term treatment experienced some new hair growth, though it is unlikely that all your hair will grow back.

How do I take Propecia?

Take one Propecia tablet once a day. Propecia will start working straight away and you could start to see the results in as little as three months. If you stop taking the medicine, the hair loss process will begin again. Any results achieved will begin to reverse by six months and be gradually lost by nine to 12 months, if you stop taking the medicine.

Recommended dose

The recommended dose is one tablet each day. The tablet can be taken with or without food.

If you take more Propecia than you should

If you take too many tablets by mistake, contact your doctor immediately. Propecia will not work faster or better if you take it more than once a day.

If you forget to take Propecia

Do not take a double dose to make up for a forgotten dose.

If you stop taking Propecia

It may take 3 to 6 months for the full effect to develop. It is important to keep taking Propecia for as long as your doctor tells you. If you stop taking Propecia, you are likely to lose the hair you have gained within 9 to 12 months.

If you have any further questions on the use of this medicine, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

Important Safety Information about Propecia

  • Propecia is for the treatment of male pattern hair loss in MEN ONLY and should not be used by women or children
  • You may need to take Propecia daily for 3 months or more before you see a benefit from taking Propecia.
  • Propecia can only work over the long term if you continue taking it. If you stop taking Propecia, you will likely lose any hair you have gained within 12 months of stopping treatment.
  • If Propecia has not worked for you within 12 months, further treatment is unlikely to be of benefit.
  • You should not use Propecia if you are allergic to finasteride or any of the ingredients in Propecia.
  • Women who are or may potentially be pregnant must not use Propecia and should not handle crushed or broken Propecia tablets because the active ingredient may cause abnormalities of a male babyís sex organs. If a woman who is pregnant comes into contact with the active ingredient in Propecia, a doctor should be consulted. Propecia tablets are coated and will prevent contact with the active ingredient during normal handling, provided that the tablets are not broken or crushed.
  • In clinical studies for Propecia, a small number of men experienced certain sexual side effects, such as less desire for sex, difficulty in achieving an erection, or a decrease in the amount of semen. Each of these side effects occurred in less than 2% of men and went away in men who stopped taking Propecia because of them.

Clinical studies showed that side effects were uncommon and did not affect most men.

Stop taking Propecia and talk to your doctor immediately if you have any of the following symptoms:

  • allergic reactions including rash, itching, hives, and swelling of the lips and face
  • problems with ejaculation
  • breast tenderness and enlargement
  • testicular pain.

You should promptly report to your doctor any changes in your breasts such as lumps, pain, or nipple discharge. Tell your doctor about these or any other unusual side effects.

A small number of men had sexual side effects, with each occurring in less than 2% of men. These include: less desire for sex, difficulty in achieving an erection, decrease in the amount of semen.

These side effects went away in men who stopped taking Propecia because of them. In addition, these side effects decreased to 0.3% of men or less by the fifth year of treatment.

In 3 controlled clinical trials for Propecia of 12-month duration, 1.4% of patients who took Propecia were discontinued due to adverse experiences that were considered to be possibly, probably, or definitely drug related. 1.6% of patients who took a sugar pill (placebo) were discontinued due to adverse experiences.

Propecia can affect a blood test called PSA (prostate-specific antigen) for the screening of prostate cancer. If you have a PSA test done, tell your doctor that you are taking Propecia.
